Seemingly a follow up to the movie.
29 March 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This seems to be a follow up to the 1980 movie of the same name.

It includes Dan Sturkie, who also played Grandpa Carter in the movie, so the best I can figure is this was an attempt to get people to find out about & watch the film. (which wasn't too bad). Needless to say, it didn't last long.
